Extended Hill Family Mini-Vaca 2014

In March, the extended Hills took a quick trip to New Orleans.

I don't have many photos from the weekend, but it was an enjoyable time for the siblings to get together, the cousins to play and for all of us to enjoy hanging out with PD.

On Saturday morning we went to the Aquarium. Then that afternoon we enjoyed lunch at Peche. Later we left the kids with our wonderful babysitter and had drinks on the patio (with a game of Jumbo Jenga and Jumbo Connect Four).

That evening we dined. Seriously, dinner lasted 6 hours. When you dine with PD Hill, you DINE.

Sunday morning we attended the House of Blues Gospel Brunch where Laura and Justin were called up to the stage and serenaded for their Anniversary- very cute.

It was a great weekend; I only wish I had been more of a shutterbug!

Here are some photos from the Aquarium:
(Chris and Bradley checking out the fish.)

(Maria and PD, too!)
(Lucy wasn't so sure about those fish...)
(But Bradley LOVED them!)
(He really wanted to touch a penguin.)
(All of the cousins checking out the fish.)
(When given the chance, LUCY was all about touching the manta-ray and Bradley was not at all. I was shocked!)
(Posed shots might take another year to master...)

A great weekend!
